Flood Cup

 

Round 5 results:

Joseph Curtain ˝ Andrew Robinson ˝

Tony Howes 1 Mark Pendrith 0

Brian Willcock 0 Rex Scarf 1

 

Three games were played tonight to complete Round 5.

 

The quickest game to finish was Brian against Rex, with Rex claiming his first win over the board in this tournament.

 

Capitalising on a blunder by his opponent, Joseph Curtain reached the endgame with a rook on the 7th rank controlling play, and a piece up.

However a Houdini effort from Andrew meant that the game ended in an agreed draw after pawns were liquidated and Joe’s extra bishop wasn’t enough.

 

Tony was in a piece in front for the last hour or more and it was a slow grind to a win in his game just before 11pm.
